Pankaj Tripathi on nepotism: ‘Audience is very smart, they know who is talented and who is not’

Actor Pankaj Tripathi is undoubtedly one of the vital thrilling actors in Bollywood as we speak. With a variety as huge as his – his rise was inevitable. He has labored in hard-hitting Netflix drama corresponding to Sacred Games, movies corresponding to Newton to doing light-hearted movies like Bareilly Ki Barfi. The actor has single-handedly made supporting roles mainstream.

The actor says that whereas he did see such experiences within the trade, his personal story has been totally different. “Nepotism have never really bothered me in any way. I have been busy working on my craft. People might think I am lying when I say that I have never felt uncomfortable in the industry. But this journey and experience have been mine so I only can say how it was so far. My truth is that I have had my share of struggles. I have worked immensely hard to bag roles in films. I have struggled for eight long years before people started recognizing me,” he stated in a brand new interview.

“Although I have never had any such experiences, I would not deny that I have seen these things happening in the industry with others. Star kids do get opportunities quicker than others because they belong to a certain family. I never got opportunities so easily. However, nobody stopped me too. No matter if you become a recognised actor after eight years of struggle or just a mere eight days if you do not have the talent; you will not survive in this industry. The audience is very smart. They know who is talented and who is not,” he informed Times of India within the interview.
